Oxford University Press, Music Department, 1994 - Music - 118 pages
These settings, breathtaking in their simplicity and beauty, reflect and confirm the wide view of English music in the first half of this century: the selections, by Delius, Holst, Howells, Ireland, Vaughan Williams, and Warlock--and others--uniquely give the choral sound and the imagery of nature. English Pastoral Partsongs nicely compliments other Oxford secular choral anthologies: English Romantic Partsongs, The English Glee, and English Madrigals.
